Back on topic, I favour the roundabout outside T5, but I haven’t heard anything in support of this option, so it looks likely she’ll languish, rat infested, near the Engineering area for the foreseeable future:

The TU-144 made less than 60 scheduled passenger flights. Against that background, 20 deaths is pretty high. Safety concerns meant it was almost immediately grounded. Concorde served for over 27 years.”

That’s a good point, alexlondon – I think if anyone had broached the subject of which was deadlier, then a good case could be made to suggest that the Tu-144 was a candidate for that title. It’s certainly an impressive beast, and well worth visiting.
